Not true. CBS news said you do not have to live in that state to vote according to the site, just need 25,000 signatures.

Let them secede. Then the US can bomb the hell out of them and turn Texas into a parking lot. Fucking treasonous bastards...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23011194


* California Has Been Abandoned by the Federal Government

In California's greatest hour of need she was brutaly abandoned
by the federal government, under both Democratic and
Republican administrations.

When California was devasted by an energy crisis artificially created
by hostile forces in other states, the federal government did nothing
to protect her and actively held California's hands by her side so
she could not defend herself from her attackers.

This purposeful betrayal broke the sacred trust between Calfornia
and the federal government.

Under which president did this happen ?

I hope they do secede. It will be hilarious when they get invaded by Mexican drug cartels.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18879364

No cartel will invade. They will run for cover. The Us border patrol is a joke, but let real Texans guard the Border and it will be a different matter!

Re: BREAKING - Texas Secession Petition just keeps growing and growing!
Let's suppose for an instant Texas has seceded and is now an independent republic.

What if Mexico, who has resented having lost Texas for a long time if I am not mistaken, attacks Texas in a sudden war of conquest in an attempt to get it back for good ?

Will the US (of the 49 statesq) step in ?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27568470


You mistake the relationship between Texas and Mexico. That wouldn't happen. We are trading partners. Mexicans have always been a part of Texas. There is alot of Mexican influence in our culture. Now we'd surely come down harder on the border than the feds especially with all the violence there these days but Texas and Mexico are pretty close. Have a look at any Texas town next month and just watch how many Mexicans go home for the holidays. They take money to their family there then come back. It's all very intertwined. That's why immigration policy is so complicated for border states. With it you have a friendship and a close relation but also a problem.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24537507

I understand this intertwining, intimate relationship factor. But on a political level, are you sure there aren't forces who would be active in trying to "give back" Texas to Mexico ?

NASA Mission Control is there.

Plenty of other high-tech and defense oriented stuff is in Texas. Ingenious Texans would find a way to apply this if needed in a border war.

Mexico wouldn't have a shadow of a chance.

The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs." -- Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President.

Re: BREAKING - Texas Secession Petition just keeps growing and growing!
As a non-Texan I do think that Texas (and California) "could" survive as independent economic countries, whereas most others states, and even some entire regions could NOT. 25,000,000 people is clearly enough people for creating a country.

I will point out though with current Demographic trends Hispanics WILL outnumber Whites in Texas by 2020, and when combined with Blacks (about 12% of the population), the current minorities in that State will greatly outnumber Whites by then.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25450407

And then, don't forget about Mecha. Are they still very active ? This is a movement which, in a nation with this kind of a population, might be a strong influence for "bonding" with the mother country (by which I mean Mexico). All kinds of things could happen.
